It sounds like you're keeping the 300c anyway which makes a motorcycle a perfect choice.

Fun, fast, economical, manual. You've still got the car for poor weather and moving bigger things.

Yes the 300c is staying. I need it for family. I would kill myself on a bike so I will have to skip on that. I am a speed demon. I forgot about some of these choices like the Golf and Miata, which is why I was asking whats out there. How is VW reliability these days? Had a horrid experiancce with a 2k Beetle I got for my Ex new. Subaru seems to come up a lot as well.

I do thank everyone for their input. Will be testing some cars listed in the thread this weekend. I will post what I pick up when I choose something in the next few weeks with some of my other fun gems in my stable I'm sure everyone would like.

Don't blame the bike for your lack of self control. It's a pretty fucking selfish attitude to have when you can admit you'd get into trouble on a bike but have no problems driving like just as much of a retard when you have a steel cage around you.

So you assume I drive like a retard now? You know when I take my other cars through the turns in the mountains what came flying around us into on coming traffic. People on bikes. These drive like crazy, going in and out of traffic, going between cars and you then you blame us for your stupidity when you get in an acident. I have YET to see anyone on a bike around my area drive normal. Not selfish, its being smart. I'm not blaming the bike. The selfish thing would be to buy a bike and drive like all the other idiot bikes and crash. I like to have power in my cars to have fun in alone or take it to the track. I do not go 200 down a freeway. I'm pushing 40 and not some stupid 20 year old with stickers on my car thinking I know it all.

Speed demon does not mean I drive like a dumb fuck on the freeway or side streets. At least in my book.

It's not buying a bike that causes those guys to ride like idiots, it's a pre-existing attitude.

I'm sure if you asked around you'd find a couple that would self identify as a "speed demon" too.
